7 from 7: Stories for your Monday afternoon

Good afternoon, everyone; we hope you had a lovely weekend and are settled in for a great week.

Here are some stories of interest for you to peruse this afternoon:

1. We keep hearing "government shutdown" talk. How would a government shutdown mean for you, on a personal level? Here are the things that you'll see locally.

2. The bank account of a missing Texas man has been accessed in Arkansas, leading authorities to believe the Dallas-area grandfather who went missing with his two grandchildren has traveled out of state. The man, William Gomez, has a medical condition that affects his memory, which may be a factor, authorities say. Details here.

3. With flu season set to begin and vaccine in plentiful supply, the Texas Department of State Health Services encourages everyone 6 months old and older to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their families against the flu. "We have already seen an increase in flu activity in Texas, and now is the time to get vaccinated," said Dr. Lisa Cornelius, DSHS infectious diseases medical officer.

4. What happened today in Texas history? Find out what happened in the Guadalupe Mountains and at Texas Tech today, among other things. Plus, a virtual hike through the mountains!

5.  Former Texas quarterback James Street, who took over the Longhorns' wishbone offense and led them to the 1969 national championship, has died. He was 65.

6. More details about the capture of an inmate who escaped an East Texas jail last week have emerged. Crystal Marie Robinson faces three new charges now: failure to identify as a fugitive from justice, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, and driving with an invalid license. More here about Robinson.

7. 200 Tyler residents are without power after a Pepsi truck strikes power lines while detouring through a neighborhood. Some have also lost cable, internet and phone service. Details here.
